    Saangkyun Yi | Hee Choi | Duong Thi Thanh Phuong and 1other persons | 2017, 6(1) | pp.1~13 | number of Cited : 3
    Vietnam and Korea have a lot of aspects similar both in historically and geopolitically. Especially, the difficulties that Vietnam is going through, due to the sovereignty issues surrounding the South China Sea, has much to suggest us. For Korea, who is facing difficult national issues such as the sovereignty of Dokdo island as well as the naming of ‘The East Sea’ etc., the timing seems just right in reviewing the Vietnam’s case study. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to understand the Vietnam’s response methodology and the status on territorial education regarding the sovereignty issues they are facing. As a result of the research, in Vietnam, the East Sea (Biển Đông) related academic conferences are led annually by the government organizations such as Vietnam Diplomatic Academy, Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, East Sea (Biển Đông) Research Foundation, and Vietnam Legal Society. The East Sea (Biển Đông) Research Foundation offers a variety of academic awards in order to encourage researchers' interests and participations. In addition to the academic researches, Vietnamese people, via SNS, are propagating throughout the world the illegal activities by Chinese and their unfair situation that they face, in order to attract worldwide netizens’ interest and sympathy. At school, students strengthen their determination in protecting their territories by listening to lectures on ‘The Islands’ in the East Sea or by participa ting themselves in performances that symbolize the Vietnamese territory. In addition, a systematic territorial education is being conducted through the regular courses such as History, Geography, Civic Education, and Defense Education

    The Leadership and Management Ability of Rural Community Business : Focusing on Rural Tourism Villages

    Jun-Sang Yoon | Kim Sung Rok | Huyn-Sang Kim and 1other persons | 2017, 6(1) | pp.15~25 | number of Cited : 3
    This study attempted to analyze the leadership and management ability according to organization type and residents participation rate for rural tourism communities in a form of community business. As a result, leadership, management ability, visitors and sales in accordance with participation rate did not show a statistically significant difference. The difference in accordance with organization type showed a significant difference in the promotion-marketing area of management ability, financial area and sales. This study results are against the existing study results saying that residents participation in the results of village business is an important factor. This is stressing that for community business, because not only public benefit but profitability is emphasized unlike general village business, practical job performance resulting from business factors is required rather than village residents' unconditional participation. Furthermore, it was analyzed that corporate types of village organization such as agricultural corporations and farming association corporations have relatively high performance compared to unincorporated bodies such as village associations and corporate units. For a corporate body, since it presents the purpose and vision in its articles of association accurately and gives certain amount at the time of participation in the business, it can relatively ensure the responsibility of residents compared to a unincorporated body. Accordingly, for a community business, a form of corporate body is more efficient than a unincorporated body.

    The Placeness of Bukchon Village Based on Waterway

    Pyeong Soon Na | 2017, 6(1) | pp.27~50 | number of Cited : 1
    Bukchon village, the center of Seoul in South Korea, nestles snugly at a range of Bugack, Inwang and Naksan Mountains harmonizing with hills and small streams. The village has been a political, cultural and historical center of Seoul for about 600 years. Thus, the research on this place from a geological point of view is very meaningful. In this study, by overlapping and tracing antique maps and modern-contemporary maps, I found out how the water ways of Bukchon village have changed over time. I also confirmed the consistency among those changes and analyzed the placeness of Bukchon village by exploring various literatures newspapers, autobiographies and native people's narrative texts. After the research, I found out that the water ways in Bukchon village are hidden due to the covering constructions during the Japanese colonial period, but have been still flowing under roads up to now. I also ascertained that there remain some wells and wash places in the village which are the traces of the past water ways. I verified that though the water ways of Bukchon have changed a lot, they still are recognized as one of the important factors which are influencing upon the placeness of Bukchon village.

    Study on Meaning of Square through Reading the Micro Discourse in Blog: Concentrated on Pungnam-Mun Square in the City of Jeonju

    Jun-Young Kim | 2017, 6(1) | pp.51~62 | number of Cited : 1
    Historically, the square is usually the place that holds the most memorable events in the city. In this regard, the square can be understood as a sphere of public opinions. As Jürgen Habermas once pointed out, only a few upper class people were able to participate in the formation of public opinion in the past time, but today whoever can express and share his opinions in daily life with the development of the Internet. This study assumed blog's descriptions or evaluations of public square where public opinions are generated can be developed into microscopic discourses, because they are expressed from personal experiences or opinions and shared among people through Internet connection. Jeonju Pungnam-mun Square was built in 2012 for a marketing strategy of the city of Jeonju, and it became a place where the civic planned cultural events happened. However the blog contents related with square have become more diverse while square gets more popularity. I used search in search technique in Naver to categorize contents listed in terms of specific issues such as personal, historical, political, social, economic, and cultural. Even if the political or social assembly in the square happened not frequently, microscopic discourse that begins in the individual blog's article has enough potential to be developed into public discourse through the open debate or consensus. Ultimately, the public discourse formation is still expected through the public square with the interaction of microscopic discourse in the personal internet communication media such as blogs.

    Hoang Thi Viet Ha | 2017, 6(1) | pp.77~92 | number of Cited : 0
    Vietnam is one of the largest rice exporters in the world rice market with such a long history in rice production. In Vietnam, the Mekong Delta (MD) is considered as “rice bowl” not only of the country but also of the Asian region. The delta counts for more than 50% total rice production and 90% of rice export in the volume of the country (2015). The delta has its own advantageous natural and economic-social features for rice production such as high soil fertility, tropical climate with high temperature, copious rainfall and experienced labor force in rice production, etc. Thanks to these favorable conditions, rice production is a significant sector in the economy of the delta and continuously increasing in rice planted area, yield and output. However, at present, rice production in the MD has been confronted with many problems such as the decrease of rice cultivated area due to climate change, soil erosion, rapidly increasing input costs, lack of infrastructure and technology, high loss rate in harvest and post-harvesting time, low rice quality and fluctuated price, etc. This paper focuses on analyzing potentialities and recent status of rice production in the MD in order to identify and minimize constraints for sustainable development rice production in the near future. This research finds out that despite rice production is an important economic sector of the MD, the present status of rice production is still not corresponding to its great potentialities, then it needs to be improved as sustainable trends.

    A Study on the Land Administration Support Using the Popular Rotary-Wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    Kihong Park | Hong Il Young | 2017, 6(1) | pp.93~100 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    In this study, the spatial information was acquired by using the popular rotorary-wing UAV and the image processing software was used to find a way to utilize it directly from the municipality to the land administration. A total of 195 aerial photographs were taken through the automatic mode flight for 20 minutes using the smartphone app, and mosaic images and orthophtotos were quickly generated using software that provides image processing functions in a batch processing. The usefulness of the UAV model obtained through research is that spatial decision makers can quickly acquire the latest data with high resolution and use them for civil affairs such as landuse change counseling so that they can preemptively respond to the changing demands of civil petitions to be. These advantages are expected to be utilized in the related land administration tasks such as survey of unregistered land, investigation of occupation status of national and common land as a plan for constructing participatory spatial information in the future.
